Placement: Spotify's App Store Imagery

CD Baby’s Licensing team has worked on many exciting projects with the Spotify Music Clearance team. Spotify has licensed a range of CD Baby artists to be incorporated into screenshots and demos of the Spotify User Interface. The uses have included in-car displays (BMW, Jaguar) to product demos (Samsung Galaxy Buds). One unique outcome of this deal is that Spotify has now updated its App Store imagery to incorporate only CD Baby artists into the screenshots in all App Stores globally. With Spotify being one of the most downloaded Apps on the planet, this is amazing visibility for the featured CD Baby artists!
